I don't really tend to talk too much about the brushes I use everyday on my blog. But this one has wowed me so much recently that I wanted to share it with you, it's a gem you might not suspect from the name. It's the ELF Studio Powder Brush - Available from ELF for £3.50 - bargain!
Like all the ELF Studio Brushes this is made of silky soft taklon bristles. These are synthetic, so great for those that don't want to use animal hair and also I haven't had any shedding even with some slightly rough washing! In shape it is flat topped and reasonably dense. It also looks fairly stylish being all black and has a nice finish on the handle. Basically I'm a massive fan of the ELF Studio Brushes!
How do I use it?
I generally tend to use this with liquid foundation despite it being designed as a powder brush. I simply squirt a small amount in the middle and repeatedly pat it around my face, giving small stokes with it too in some places such as my jawline. So pretty much I use this as you would a stipple brush except it's denser.
What makes it my favourite?
It's really easy and quick to use when I'm in a rush. But what really makes it stand out is that it gives a beautiful flawless coverage. It also has a fab habit of making the foundation you've used seem like it has a better coverage than it actually does.
I really can't give this brush enough praise, and just hope that I don't fall out of love with it! The foundation I currently love using with it is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum one - which is also amazing! But as always if you have any questions/comments etc then leave me a comment below and I'll get back to you all. Thanks for stopping by, H :)
